Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’ve written over 50 romance titles under many sub-romance-genres. I’m from Louisiana and a full-bloodied cajun. Me, my wife, and my 5 neices and nephews live with the bayou at our back door on a 3-acre piece of land full of trees! We love it.
We homeschool and so when I’m not writing, I’m helping with the kids or working on the house addition (we’re putting a second story) There’s never a dull moment around here, that’s for sure. I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I enjoyed writing it!
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The final (6th) book in my Reginald Bones series. A story about a man with split personalities who falls in love with the same woman. At first only one of his personalities falls for her and the other hates her. Eventually, they all like her and none of them want to share her lol. I think I may love this series the most out of all my stories.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
It’s not unusual to me, but I plot the basic storyline which is almost always character-driven, and write by scenes while listening to word-less music.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Amo Jones is an amazing writer, that’s all I have on that lol. If I could learn the craft from anybody, I’d glean from her talents. But she is not easy to glean from since her craft is based on her very own unique talent.
What are you working on now?
My latest book coming is Headsectomy. About a man who is getting a head transplant to save his life. The short blurb– It’s a miracle he found a doctor to perform the illegal procedure, but can he and his family survive the chilling outcome of its success. It will be a medical thriller-horror that I hope will rock the reader world!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
www.authorlucianbane.com (My website!)
Do you have any advice for new authors?
If you want to make it as a professional writer, you had better take business classes and treat it EXACTLY like a business facing fierce competition. Otherwise, you’re wasting your time and money. Go big or go home with this one. Find writing groups that do not PLAY around with writing and marketing. The more strict the rules are in the group, the better the group.
Do NOT get caught up in any kind of bad drama. It is NOT worth it.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Too many things to list!
What are you reading now?
Nothing at the moment
What’s next for you as a writer?
Marketing my backlists and writing Headsectomy and hopefully becoming a best-seller with that one!
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
The bible, survivors guide, diary, and…can i just bring my library???
